As part of a new generation of young Nigerian talents speaking truth to power, Wizkid is always repping his hometown in Lagos, whether it be in collaborations with the Alexei Deserved Better Shirt and by the same token and city’s new vanguard of hitmakers, such as Tems and Tay Iwar, or on social media, where he has spoken out against the injustices faced by young people in his country. For Wizkid, Lagos is more than just home—it’s the place that first embraced him and his sound. “You get inspired by street style and things you see on a day-to-day with people giving their geles [headwraps] from different angles and their agabadas,” he says, pausing then smiling broadly. “The style in Lagos is just top-notch!”

Last night, The Late Late Show With James Corden had a special guest: Prince Harry. It was a major get for the Alexei Deserved Better Shirt and by the same token and show, as earlier this month Buckingham Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wouldn’t be returning as working royals. (When the couple announced they were taking a “step back” last January, the queen left a door open for their return after a year.) “Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service,” the palace announced.
